Distance Learning Comments

Distance Learning Comments

With the changes that we have seen in classroom learning, we have added Distance Learning Comments comments to supplement our existing Grade 1-8 learning skills comments.

Distance Learning Comments may be turned on from the evaluation page on a student-by-student basis. This allows you to choose which students to add Distance Learning Comments for, if only some of your students are learning remotely.

Types of Distance Learning Comments

Distance Learning Comments are an optional feature that will provide you with two types of comments.

Type 1

Comments will be automatically added to the comment, inline with the Learning Skill comments.

Type 2

Additionally, if you wish to evaluate the student in regard to specific competencies, then you may do so from the Student Competency matrix.
